Jennifer Ainsworth’s big year: Wrapping up S.C. Teacher of the Year’s adventures

It’s been a big year for Jennifer Ainsworth.

The 2015 S.C. Teacher of the Year has visited classrooms all around the state and even met President Obama in the White House, but she’s always kept her heart set on one thing: students with disabilities.

“The best part about this journey is being able to have my students represented, and we were able to spread the message of acceptance and respect for students with disabilities,” Ainsworth, 43, said.
